Who is interested in UNI EN 1090 Certification
The UNI EN 1090 certification concerns steel or aluminum structures manufacturers (eg metal carpenters) that will be obliged from 1 July 2014 to CE marking according to UNI EN 1090-1 (Execution of steel structures and of aluminum).
Certification according to UNI EN 1090 allows the placing on the market of construction products within the EU. On July 1, 2013, European Commission Regulation (EU) No. 305/2011 entered into force on construction products introducing novelties and obligations for companies operating in the Construction Products Market and regulating the conditions for the CE marking.
Companies that will be required to be certified according to UNI EN 1090 include manufacturers of the following steel or aluminum components:
- products in sections / profiles of various shapes
- laminated products (plates, sheets, tapes)
- bars, forged by steel and aluminum, protected or not protected against corrosion by coatings or other surface treatments, such as aluminum anodizing
- steel components used in steel-concrete composite structures
As a result, companies that:
- work in their own headquarters (known as “establishment”) steel for precast concrete;
- realize metal structures to be laid in operation once finished;
- realize parts of metal structures made to be laid out once finished;
- they make greasy plates;
- they produce cold-formed profiles;
- realize structural elements;
- implement a “pre-machining” of structural elements to be installed later;
- produce metal carpentry;
- produce bolts, nails and brackets.
